America's 3,000+ county governments invest nearly $500 billion each year in local services, and building and sustaining healthy and vibrant communities. Grant funds play a vital role in the delivery of these services. eCivis helps counties secure new grant awards and manage their existing grant funds. Here are what county governments expect from eCivis.
The objectives of the system were to improve comprehensive grant reporting by the County, track the County’s success rate in obtaining grants, identify grants available to fund projects, track expenses on a grant and department level basis, monitor grant deadlines and deliverables, and establish an audit trail for all grant activities. The grants management system was also required to perform the following key tasks:
"eCivis has provided us with funding opportunities that we could not find elsewhere. They provide a great summary of the funder's program focus, guidelines, and eligibility so that you can review opportunities efficiently. Their customer service is very accessible and personal."
— Margaret Friend, Director of Development, County of Alachua, FL
"eCivis has taken a very long, tedious, and time consuming process and has increased my job efficiency by 100 percent. eCivis has tasks and reminders which are very efficient in assisting with time management, when writing grants time can get away from us and deadlines can be missed. I highly recommend eCivis."
— Jeanna Cox, Polk County Board of Commissioners, County of Polk, FL
"eCivis gives me everything I need in one place. The advance notices particularly help us prepare, so we have the programs and processes in place when grants are officially announced. Often the deadlines are quick, and we could miss the opportunities otherwise."
— Debi Benight, Grant Coordinator, County of Tulsa, OK
